(1901), Jay Morgan (1904), John Reynolds (1906), Harry Hayner (1908), Mary Katherine(1910), Allan Glenn (1912) and Alvin Chester (1912-1912). They lived in East China, St Clair County, Michigan when Dorothy was born. Later they lived to Cottrellville and Marine City, Michigan.

In the 1910 Federal Census, Dorothy is eight years old and probably attending school. The family lived in Cottrellville, Michigan. The census indicates that all the living children remain at home.  Addie has married Andrew Anderson and they are living with Addie’s parent, Charles and Mary.
